T11K OWN Kit of an automobile is not responsible for damage it may cause in the hands of his chauffeur, even when the Ut ter is "joy riding" with his employer's consent. Such is the ruling of Supreme Court Justice Cohalan in a oase in which the victim of an accident caused by a careless chauffeur while using his employer's cbt sued the owner for damages. Then a man who owns a powerful machine, capable, when mia handled, of killing and crippling any number of men, women and children in the public streets, need not worry about how many people it slaughters or maims on wild "joy rides" taken with or without his knowledge. lie is not bound to concern himself with any murder hit ear may do when he is not personally present. lie con be as careless and indifferent as he likes as to what is done with his car when he is not using it, sure that he can alwaye take refuge behind the garage keeper or the chauffeur. The public is at the mercy of irresponsible drivers and mechanics. It has no redress save from them. Is this safety? I a ons were answers, how convinced we could bel OR IS THE SUBWAY PERFECT? IN EACH succeeding issue of the Interborough Bulletin a publi cation wherein the aubway management pats itself on the back every month subway officials are more and more ready to admit that they have made subway travel a joy and a delight. But it has not yet occurred to (he management, among other things, that the present custom of allowing people entering cars in rush hours to stop short on the end platform and block the way of others causes pentt discomfort, serious delay and intolerable crowding. Why not keep the end platforms clear, as on surface cars? Nor does it seem to suggest itself to the management that the hideous, brain-piercing shrieks caused by faulty brakes and unoiled tracks could be remedied by proper adjustment and a awah of grease. Nobody expects the subway trains to be noiseless. But everybody knowa that these ear-splitting, nerve-sawing screeches caused by metal grinding against metal are due to sheer neglect of equipment. Will the Interborough deny it? What will the wee- bring forth? Leave It t Henneuy. mm A GREAT INVENTOR.

And he took occasion to mak a HllKhtlnK remark about a very beautiful and very powerful woman tn fact, perhaps th, most Influential woman at the moment in Europe. The Prussian woman-hater's Idle speech led to rather Important r eulta, among which were the loss of about a million lives, the future found ing of the German and British Empires and the changing of America's whola career. A good harvest to spring from th, Prussian King's aurly plgram: "Francr f ruf'd by l.ouii XV., and Louis XV. U ruled by a xcorthUt vomnn."

In a flaming rage at Frederlck'a Inault. used every atom of her strange power over Ixula to persuade him to break the France-Prua alan alliance. She aucceeded.

For a time It looked as though Pruaala waa going to be wiped out of existence. But England, through hatred of France, formed aa alliance with rnitata. And the famoua Seven Teara' War waa on.
